Ghana's No. 1

Roy Keane rips into 'DREADFUL' Fred and says he expected him to miss the open goal he scored

Published on: 11 April 2021

Roy Keane gave a scathing assessment of Fred's performance against Tottenham on Sunday night.

The Sky Sports pundit said the Manchester United midfielder was 'dreadful' and that he failed to see why people were praising him after their 3-1 victory.

Keane credited United with 'good link-up play' but said that Fred's goal was the only satisfactory part of his performance and that he actually thought he was going to miss it.

Speaking after the game, Keane said: 'Just as well Fred scored because I thought he was dreadful, I don't know what people are talking about he had a game.

'But again good link-up play from United, which is what they are good at. One-two in and around the box, poor defending from Tottenham and Fred on the spot.

'I thought he [Fred] was even going to miss that [goal], but lovely play.'

Fred's goal got Manchester United back into the game after they went 1-0 down following a controversial VAR decision.

Edinson Cavani thought he had put United ahead before the half-time mark when he latched onto Paul Pogba's pass and slipped it past Hugo Lloris to make it 1-0.

However, the goal was overturned following a VAR review as Scott McTominay's hand had made contact with Son Heung-min's face in the build-up.

Son added insult to injury by scoring just moments after the decision, handing Tottenham the advantage.

Fred provided United will the all-important equaliser just 17 minutes later to level the scores.

United went on to win the game 3-1 after Cavani and Mason Greenwood added to the tally.
